IfADo – Leibniz Research Centre for Working Environment and Human Factors investigates the benefits and risks of modern work life from various perspectives – ranging from single cells to entire individuals and groups in their working environment. As a result, we conduct research that contributes to an adequate design of the working environment for the benefit and wellbeing of the working people as well as the maintenance and promotion of performance, health and competitiveness throughout the whole lifespan.
